Bob Baker Marionette Theater presents “Alegre!”– a colorful celebration of music and marionettes that perfectly complements the surrounding enchantment and vibrance of Knott’s Fiesta Village. This joyful return of marionettes to the Knott’s Berry Farm stage features a sparkling lineup of samba-dancing cacti, fluttering flowers, a majestic marimba player, and many more newly restored puppets that have been delighting audiences for over half a century. Perfect for every age and attendee, Bob Baker Marionette Theater’s “Alegre!” is a timeless delight in a part of the theme park that pays tribute to California’s Hispanic roots and culture.
The Bob Baker Marionettes are proud to continue the legacy of puppet performances at the historic Knott’s Berry Farm. Dating from Tony Kemeny’s puppet wagon in the late 1950s to René Zendejas’ marionette performances in the 1980s, Knott’s Berry Farm’s tradition of enchantment through the art of puppetry contributes a unique chapter to Southern California entertainment history. Bob Baker Marionette Theater looks forward to a summer of performances on the very same Fiesta Village stage where past generations of puppetry legends have delighted audiences of all ages.
